This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for your participation.
The winner is comment #134: Kelly

In honor of Earth Day, PBS will air an Earth Day-themed episode of the animated preschool series, “Sid the Science Kid” entitled, “The Dirt on Dirt.” This episode will air April 22 on the popular PBS KIDS preschool destination, an educational, hosted two-hour morning television block.


In an Earth Day-themed episode, Sid wants to know what makes dirt so dirty. At school, Sid and his friends discover that dirt is really important to the Earth because it helps things grow, and it’s also filled with tiny rocks, pieces of leaves, and even living things like bugs and worms!


Sid the Science Kid is one of our family’s favorite cartoons. I love how it focuses on helping children understand the world around them. This show is aimed at kids 3 yrs to 6 yrs old and is presented in a fun way that really keeps my girls attention.

In “The Dirt on Dirt”, Sid and his class finds out what dirt is really made of. This was particularly interesting to us because it’s something that we’ve never really thought about. It helped Girlie Girl understand the cycle of plant life and how things grow. It was the perfect episode for Earth Day!


I have an advance screener copy of The Dirt on Dirt for one lucky winner. To enter:

  • Just mention in comments before midnight, April 21st what you’re doing for Earth Day. That’s it!
  • A random winner will be selected and notified via email on April 22nd.
  • The winner will then have 3 days to claim their prize.

To earn extra entries, you may do one or all of the following. Each one counts as an extra ticket but you must leave a separate comment for each one.

  17. Chris N says:

    Although we have stopped using non-rechargeable batteries, we still have a supply of used regular ones to dispose of. I’ve finally found a place that will recycle them and we will go there for earth day.

    We will be taking a huge load of aluminum cans and scrap wire (my husband works for a telecommunications company) to be recycled, and then we will spend the day outside with all our animals (we have a farm). We try to live green all the time. Its easier to teach if you practice it.

    Honestly, we don’t have any plans for earthday. I am thinking that perhaps we will go outside and work on our garden. It needs to be cleaned of leaves and debris as well as cleared of weeds. I also have a couple of Easter plants that need to be planted there.

  36. sandra says:


  37. Denise B. says:

    We don’t recognize “Earth Day”. That always seems to me like the equivalent of worshipping a pagan god like “Mother Nature” instead of “God” who has already told us of the demise of the world and in whom we put our trust. The earth will be here, alive and well, long after mankind is gone.

  38. Denyse says:

    We’ll be taking the kids to clean up our local beach.

    We will be planting trees on earth day. Thanks for the chance to win!
